LibriVox recording of The First Violin, by Jessie Fothergill. Read by Sandra G.
May Wedderburn is a quiet provincial girl, living in small and seemingly boring Skernford. Underneath the dull exterior, there is mystery, suspicion and fear in this little town, surrounding the austere local wealthy landowner who is very interested in marrying poor May. It looks as though she will have to marry him whether she likes it or not until an unsuspected alliance is formed between her and a respected old lady. They both escape to Germany where music and excitement await them.

The First Violin
As with her other solo narration, the reader's youthful voice and perfect diction aids this romantic tale. Frankly the narrator's skill and expressiveness kept my interest more than the story. Again we must thank Sandra for her fine work. Ubrigens ist ihr Deutsch ziemlich gut.
